Other Criteria was founded as a publishing company in 2005 by Damien Hirst, Hugh Allan and Frank Dunphy, with creative directorship from Jason Beard. Based in Marylebone, London, we work directly with Damien Hirst and a number of established and emerging artists to make limited editions and multiples, t-shirts, jewellery, photographs, posters, prints and books. The eclectic nature of our company means we make a wide range of desirable items of great quality and originality. We source artisans, printers and fabricators worldwide. Other Criteria is the only company of its kind in the UK.
Many of our publications have won international awards for their design and have included essays and interviews by Hans Ulrich Obrist, Gordon Burn, J.G. Ballard, Michael Bracewell, Rudi Fuchs, Neal Brown, Jeremy Miller, AA Gill and New York art critic, Bruce Ferguson.
The company has grown organically since its inception and is now a ten strong team of designers, production managers and assistants. All merchandise is available for sale through our website, and at our shops at 36 New Bond Street; 14 Hinde Street, London and 988 Madison Avenue, New York.
